Earlier this month Carolina Gartenberg, 5WPR Senior Vice President and General Manager of 5WPR Miami, had the privilege of attending Axios BFD Miami, an exclusive half-day event where Axios business and Pro reporters conducted insightful interviews with top industry leaders. The discussions centered around identifying the hottest topics for 2024 and addressing the most pressing challenges facing the Miami business community. Here are her three key takeaways from the event:

Florida business is booming:

Despite Florida’s varying political dynamics, business leaders aren’t shying away from its robust business environment. Keith Rabois – a Khosla Ventures boomerang (Rabois left Founders Fund, Thiel’s shop, earlier this year) and Miami resident for the past few years, noted business recruitment remains high, promising for brands looking to grow. When employees share concerns, companies can rise to the challenge by offering solutions, such as education for their children and family relocation support.

High-Profile Individuals Undertaking International Ventures:

Former White House advisor Jared Kushner made it clear during the event that his future lies in Miami and international investments. As the co-founder of Affinity Partners, Kushner emphasized his commitment to staying out of the political spotlight and concentrating on business endeavors. Notably, he continues to invest in Israeli companies and engage with business and political leaders across the Middle East, highlighting Miami’s growing significance as a hub for global business activities.

Miami’s Magnetism:

Miami wants to be taken seriously. While the city may be surrounded by palm trees, beaches, and golf courses (which are always good for making deals) the people at Axios BFD are all business. Attendees, ranging from seasoned entrepreneurs to investment bankers, demonstrated a strong commitment to fostering economic growth and innovation in the region. Despite its reputation as “Crypto City,” Miami is evolving into a multifaceted business ecosystem that attracts talent from across the country. The influx of professionals from cities like New York and Washington, D.C. (Carolina being a DC transplant herself), reflects Miami’s appeal as a dynamic and diverse business destination.

Axios BFD Miami provided valuable insights into the emerging trends and opportunities shaping the city’s business landscape in 2024. Despite external challenges and political controversies, Miami continues to assert itself as a thriving business hub with global ambitions. As the city embraces its role in facilitating innovation and collaboration, the future looks promising.
